Here's a little story that needs to be heard

about an old couple who lived in the hood

firecrackers blazing outside there window pane

folks had insisted the couple was insane

take heed to the reader as best as you can

the old Oscar man had a definite plan

fine capabilities blown up in desire

would play his Sly & Family Stone song, "Want to take you higher":.

his wife was a clean freak wanted everything neat & tidy

at night the old man used to show her his hyney

nothing phony when they were both broke with no money

they made a journey to O.T.B trying to get the honey

in time they would both shine like an ivory tower

busting moves even if they had a hip replacement

yet this story gets deeper then ever before

when in a drive by the struck old man Oscar in the left eye

now they must confess that some of life was a great test

they then spent most of their time huddled inside

no more painting the town and shooting pool

they lived by a different type of rule

folks we need to take it all in let me begin

?

yesterday was such a simple game they used to play

awe but then let's face it its easier today

you can always occupy your time with a fine wine, dine & sixty nine

kick it to the curb as if you have heard

those sensational voices with choices

never did the old couple grow apart

even when the old man let out a fart

it was a brand new start when he got shot

made that homeboy think a lot

invested his time with love seeking a new vibration

together they both his the golden age of 100

it isn't any wonder all those sweet thoughts that they discovered

many folks today like to work undercover rather then to discover

love was the essence of their meager existence let's learn to shun each resistance

at every circumstance we can all learn to take part in the dance

with second chances that your higher power advances

so the moral of the story is love in a song

it advanced Rodney King's philosophy, "Can't we all just get along" ?

Like Slick Rick I like to tell a nice story so why I even worry.
